Congratulations to Elizabeth, Brandy and Alyssa for finding Dinosaur #38!

This clue led to where I saw a lot of shows in my late teens / early twenties: The Cactus Club! It was a total dive (the bathrooms were absolutely disgusting) but it was somewhere to see bands play! While the venue no longer exists, there is still a building there, and a place to put a clue:

A huge thank you to Dani from the Pillowfights for helping me hide these clues (and for helping me replace the clues when they were removed. She also had the brilliant idea of attaching them to yarn bombs to make them look more like art rather than vandalism. Go Dani!).
